There should be a trigger warning of sorts for these kinds of elevator music.

Maggie, I would suggest adding Bachelard’s 1938 The Psychoanalysis of Fire to your reading list. (How can one not like an epistemologist’s book that opens by quoting Paul Eluard: “I must not look on reality as being like myself.” ; -)

Men have known this for decades - it’s explosions that make a movie worth watching.


#5

Technically speaking, was that an explosion or a deflagration?


#6

Wait, no. That would be detonation vs. deflagration. Nevermind.

It was a ka-boom and that’s what really matters. :smiley:
The rest is just nitpicking. And I say that as a chief nitpicker. :smile:

Though, it must be said, a good high-order detonation in a humid air where the rarefaction part of the shock wave makes a Wilson cloud is a sight to see!
